We only have a week left in Northern Ireland before we jet off to North America so as I did with the first trip, I thought I would share how much we had spent prior to leaving which is thankful a lot less than the first time as we had most of the gear we needed.
So here it is, all of our spending so far:
We had very little to get compared to our first trip (thank goodness) but we did have to replenish toiletries and get some more heavy duty clothes for the weather in Canada.
|Coats||80||Craghoppers waterproof jackets|
A lot of this we will be sorting as we go but we have purposefully planned as much as Canada as possible given that it is ski season so things are expensive and also so that we can settle in easily.
|Flights from UK to Canada||594|
|Flights from Florida to UK||383||
|Buses in Canada||100||Calgary to Banff, Banff to Vancouver and Vancouver to Seattle|
|Accommodation Canada so far||435||
|Ice hockey tickets Calgary||37||
|Disneyworld and Universal tickets||782||
The biggest cost in this category is the travel insurance!
|Travel insurance second half||292.81||Insure and Go|
|ESTA for Lisa||9|
|Car hire excess insurance||46.99||
There you have it, the total so far is £2863.80.
Much nicer than the first half before we left! But we are travelling for longer so the final total when we return will be a lot greater than our first trip I would imagine. Keep checking the blog for updates about our budgeting and spending as we go.
Just in case you are in a rush - we normally can get back to you in less than a day!
